Traditional Chinese Medicine Practice

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was developed in China over 2000 years ago. Influenced by Taoism, it is based on the observation of the rhythms of Nature. The human body - like all other living organisms - is subject to the same forces and movements as Nature. The more we are in tune with the laws of Nature, the more our bodies and minds are in balance and harmony. When we deviate from or go against the natural course, we are likely to develop imbalances which eventually may lead to disease.


TCM sees the body and mind as one inseparable entity. The state of the mind influences the physical body and manifests itself through it. Similarly, physical symptoms have an influence on the mind. Therefore, in TCM, both body and mind are considered with equal importance.


The aim of TCM is to reestablish or to maintain the balance in the body/mind of an individual.


TCM encompasses herbal therapy, TuiNa massage therapy, acupressure, acupuncture, TaiChi, QiGong and nutrition.
